My first 10k and my favourite race so far. Really well organised. Looking forward to hopefully doing the whole series this year.

Brilliant Finale to an amazing series!

I did all five events in the Run Media City Series and they’ve all been outstanding! The event is exceptionally well organised. The staff are so friendly and accommodating and everything runs so smoothly and efficiently. Crowd support is wonderful too and it’s a fantastic place to get a PB. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every event in this series and I am looking forward to returning again next year! Thanks so much Run Through!

Great organisation!

My first run booked through find a race and the team at Media City were excellent. Friendly, welcoming and on top of all aspects. The legs are hurting this morning but I'm so glad I did the race and the team there were a big part of that. Highly recommended!

Well organised and good route

This was my first 5K race and this course was perfect for it. Its mainly flat with only a couple of slight slopes so is good for those just starting to run or those wanting a quick time.
Everything was easily set out with stewards giving direction and encouragement, and distance markers around the course.
